Ignoring ubiquitous GREEN Chromis Chromis viridisAny suggestion on small (under 10cm) fish for open water, that don’t need multiple daily feedings like goldies? Not chromis either. And must be reef safe?
Why not try a Midas Blenny? They spend most of their time in open water, unlike most of their cousins that hang round the reef. And they are great characters.
???????????????What you on about?Yeah,OVERALL there is NOTHING wrong with these guys.
They DO inhabit water column regularly.
I'm not confident recommending them, for their MULTIPLE FEED requirement.
[Overcome that, and they're in like Flynn!!!]
They are , after all, supposed mimics of Sea Goldies , Pseudanthias squamipinnis, to benefit from high nutritional value zooplankton when sneaking INTO schools...
The higher energy required to propel, and maintain themselves openwater, RAISES METABOLISM .
The activity, thus drains the fish, and necessitates MORE FREQUENT feeds. It is after all a daylong grazer, and avid planktivore.
The Pseudanthias, made the EXCLUDED/UNDESIRABLE list by Ian..... for the same reasons, methought?
Neil,???????????????What you on about?
I take it you have never kept one then??????????
